Dear Colleagues:

AIP has retooled and relaunched its online journal hosting platform. Formerly known as the Online Journal Publishing Service (OJPS), Scitation now includes upgraded capabilities and a number of powerful new features designed with the researcher in mind. Scitation currently hosts 114 publications from 18 publishers, including those from AIP Member and Affiliated Societies. Please visit to view the complete list of hosted journals.

All users of Scitation-hosted journals may now take advantage of the following new features:

   Citation manager - This feature allows easy download of properly formatted reference citations of any article on Scitation.
   Author quick search - Author names throughout Scitation are clickable, allowing researchers to execute a fast search for other articles by that author.
   Fast issue search - Every table of contents on Scitation features a link enabling a quick search of that issue.

In addition, Scitation now offers a free suite of services that lets users customize the site to their own needs. All they need do is register their name, e-mail address, and affiliation to begin using the following services:

   MyArticles - Formerly Article Collection, MyArticles still allows users to collect groups of their favorite articles. Now they can do even more, including sharing article collections with colleagues and enjoying easier management of multiple collections.
   MyPublications  - This feature offers quick access to the journals a user needs to access frequently. They can add journals to MyPublications and easily delete them when no longer needed.
   MySubscriptions - Here users will find a convenient list of all Scitation publications to which they have access through either personal or institutional subscriptions. It is automatically updated whenever new subscriptions are added or when subscriptions expire.

Important Information Regarding URLs

The URLs for journals hosted on Scitation have changed, but any existing links you have built will continue to function for the remainder of 2004. Should you wish to update your journal links at this time,  please visit for a complete list of new URLs.

We hope that your patrons will find these new features valuable. Please feel free to contact us at with any questions or feedback.
